I’m 5’2″ as well, and my mom actually suggested that sleeves/straps will make you appear taller, because it adds extra inches to the top of the dress, therefore “lengthening” you?

Best thing to do is try a few and see what you think!

Hi Aaalex, I am also 5’2 / 5’3, and have photos of myself in a really big dress with sleeves & a big veil on, if you want to pm me your email I’ll send them to you (I’d post here but don’t really know how / a bit paranoid my fiance would somehow see, lol) I guess in retrospect, looking at the photos & asking myself “do I look buried” in a way I do, it is hard for a smaller girl to carry off a huge dress…but I think about the opposite, a tall girl in a big dress, and it would almost be more of a problem, she might look overwhelmingly ginormous & bigger than the husband. I was told that I “looked more like a princess than anyone else they’ve ever seen the dress on” (but then again they may say that to every girl LOL). Let us know if you try any on & how it turns out! 🙂
